Samsung Galaxy S III to pack quad-core processor
Samsung executive confirms Galaxy S III will have quad-core chip and LTE
Today's Samsung Galaxy S III rumour is brought to you by one of Samsung's very own executives. In an interview with the Korea Times, a 'high-ranking Samsung executive' confirmed an Exynos-branded chipset with four CPU cores will be used in the Galaxy S II's successor.
Samsung feels the need to reduce its reliance on Qualcomm and the yet unannounced flagship will feature their own on-chip LTE radio. The fact that most previous generation LTE devices used a separate chip for LTE connectivity was seen as the reason for their relatively poor battery life, and Samsung is obviously going to have none of this for its next headline act.
While at Mobile World Congress this year we didn’t find many uses for quad-core chips, and yet many manufacturers are pushing the technology. As for LTE, the UK is still nowhere near getting a 4G network up and running.
Either way, the Samsung Galaxy S III will be among the most powerful smartphones on the market and we are as eager as you are to see it in person. So Samsung, would you kindly launch it already?
